From time immemorial humanity has been at war with itself, in a battle between individual rights and the elite rulers of nations. God is on the side of the individual, and wants each one of us to have the freedom to prosper and seek Him. Governments derive their authority by the consent of the governed, but they always tend toward corruption, abuse, and love of power. Left unchecked, they try to become godlike and oppress their citizens - a clear evil. King Nimrod of Babylon was the first to literally assault God from his tower with bow and arrow.
The Pharaohs of Egypt were believed to be gods on earth when Moses - who was one of the elite ruling class - defected and led the Hebrew nation away from tyranny, and the deluded King Ramses.
Earthly power must never be given the same credibility as God's power. We must recognize the Creator, not the creation, as supreme.
There's little difference in spirit between Moses, Theseus of Greece, Jesus and his Apostles, or the Founders of the United States. In each case, the battle with state authority claiming the Divine Right of Kings over individuals had to be defeated. Today, the technological state is claiming total dominion over humankind; a clear evil.
America is the last bastion of freedom in the world, the only nation capable of changing the course of human events; which are drifting toward totalitarian government and the complete subjugation of individual freedom.
These prophetic words of David, in his Psalms, were written a 1,000 years before Christ: "The kings of the earth [will] rise up, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and His anointed." Only now, with technology, is such a thing possible. The pathetic King Nimrod of Babylon is alive and well in spirit.
The United States finds itself still intact because it was founded on individual freedom of religion, inalienable rights, the recognition of God's hand in world affairs, and the priceless inheritance of English Common Law; which sees the people - regardless of class or wealth - as sacrosanct. Those accused of crimes are presumed innocent, courts must prove guilt with solid evidence, and punishment must be proportionate to the crime.
The conflict today is fierce, and getting fiercer. The outcome in the short term is far from certain. We've had many failures in our great struggles for liberation. But regardless of the outcome, the boundary line between earthly and divine authority must be drawn, and redrawn again.
Abraham Lincoln said of this great war, "It is the eternal struggle between right and wrong throughout the world... It is the same spirit that says, 'You work and toil and earn bread, and I'll eat it.' No matter in what shape it comes, whether from the mouth of a king who seeks to bestride the people of his own nation and live by the fruit of their labor, or from one race of men as an apology for enslaving another race, it is the same tyrannical principle." Lincoln knew we must fight and win a civil war in order to cleanse ourselves of the darkness, both within and without.
How can we tell when our leaders have reached the point of evil? They begin lying, and when caught, deny lying, and pile on more lies. History is rewritten to accommodate lies. Collapse always follows.
There's an election coming up in the U.S., on November 6, that will determine the future direction of world events. It marks the last possible point for America and the world to exit the highway to self-destruction.
The ruling political party in the U.S. has created an economic, ethical, legal, and foreign affairs fiasco of epic proportions. This party's philosophy is identical to the European Union's global socialist one - based on Karl Marx - that destroyed the old Soviet Union and is destroying the west daily. It creates a powerful central government that taxes producers heavily and redistributes wealth to many who are not productive. The result: reduced innovation, loss of productivity, slow or no growth, and burgeoning deficits.
The E.U. monolith is imploding, and has only a little time left. But the ruling class in the U.S. - with the aid of a perfidious and craven media - is perpetuating the lie that everyone will prosper from their philosophy, eventually. Their track record is miserable. Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal are bankrupt. The United States is bankrupt as well, unless serious steps toward economic growth are taken. Meanwhile, the Democrat Party is saying only high taxes levied on the rich will save the nation. Class civil war is their tactic for re-election, borrowed from the oldest playbook in history, the one that denies and replaces God with the State. Karl Marx merely recycled it for 19th Century consumption.
The Marxist/Socialist tactic of blaming the rich for the suffering of the poor is as old as the Roman Republic, which collapsed over 2,000 years ago. The reason? Mark Antony whipped up the discontented mobs and started a class-based civil war. He lost, and Rome was forever afterword ruled by emperors. Individual freedom was lost.
It's happening again, now, in America. The ruling party is fomenting a civil conflict, the haves against the have-nots. Democrats have used this trick since Franklin Roosevelt ran in 1932 (despite the fact that he, John Kennedy, Al Gore, and John Kerry were and are all multi-millionaires).
Of the many lies told every day, one of the worst is taking us to the brink of world war. It is the lie that a short promotional clip of a film about Muhammed, produced by a no-talent hack in Los Angeles and aired on YouTube, has inflamed radicals in the Muslim world against the west. The ruling class in America has apologized profusely, arrested the film's maker, and promises to limit free speech in the future. This is the price that radical Muslims have demanded to stop their rioting, and is a complete fraud. They hate us for a thousand reasons, but chief among them is that we will never follow their Medieval Sharia Law.
Now it turns out this is a complete lie. Congressional testimony is proving that the recent attacks on consulates and killings of ambassadors and aides are planned al Qaeda attacks. The appeasement-based Middle East policy of the Democrats is in shambles. the Arab Spring they took credit for is a mob upheaval, and they have endangered all of us westerners.
At the same time, this same ruling class has produced and is promoting a big budget film about the killing of Osama Bin Laden; and they're using that film to burnish the U.S. president's image as a freedom fighter. The Muslim rioters in Egypt and Libya recently screamed, "We're all Osama, Obama!"
Let's get this straight: The YouTube clip of Muhammed in a movie inflamed the entire Middle East, causing riots and killing; and that’s our fault. But this big budget, highly promoted film, and all the president's bragging about killing Osama is just good fun and politics.
Will American voters buy into their narrative? Upon this decision our nation’s existence hangs.
Just before the 2008 election, President Obama said to his followers at a huge rally, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America!" His version of transformation can still be halted. God is watching to see which version we prefer.
Here is a most apt description of who our enemy is:
"You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies." - Jesus to the Pharisees, from John, 8:44
